Create new session/process when editing file

I could not find if this was on the tracker on the forums. If there is I apologize.

Suggestion: If possible when editing a remote file if that can be placed into a new/background process that won't interfere with you working in a remote session. This would be quite handy when working with large files.

EX. Edit text file that gets placed in a background process and keep working in WinSCP.

I may be being picky here, right now I just use PSFTP to download a file, but sometimes I need to edit large files that take a while and would like to keep working in WINSCP.

Thoughts?

Also on another I would not mind in contributing with coding bugs/features.
Thanks!

Re: Create new session/process when editing file

Do I understand right that you want to put a download transfer to background?

OK, that's what I've meant.
Will see if more people ask for this.

I already do this using Notepad++, edit your files using Notepad++ and keep working on your site using WinSCP. You can even open multiple files and edit multiple files simultaneously with Notepad++ and as soon as you hit the save button in one of the open files in Notepad++ Winscp will automatically update the file on the server, you dont even have to manually upload the file. Open settings and replace internal editor with Notepad++.

Hi Saud,

The reason that I am requesting this is due to me working on large files. I have to wait for the file to download and the file sizes usually span between either a couple of Megs to Gigs. To be specific it takes a while for me to download a 4GB file and I have to do multiple edits to the same file.

So what happens when I open the file is that all WINSCP sessions are locked until that file is downloaded and some files take anywhere between 20-30 min to an hour sometimes. So this would be a nice to have to push the large files to a background process that will not interfere with one working in a session. I am not sure if moving the background process to it's own process thread would solve this?

These are files I don't usually keep open in my editor(notepad++) and I am usually openining them for the first time to research an issue.

Regards
